openSUSE Security Update : librsvg (openSUSE-2016-608)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 91278


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


This librsvg update to version 2.40.15 fixes the following issues :

Security issues fixed :

- CVE-2016-4348: DoS parsing SVGs with circular definitions _rsvg_css_normalize_font_size() function (boo#977986)

Bugs fixed :

- Actually scale the image if required, regression fix from upstream git (bgo#760262).

- Fixed bgo#759084: Don't crash when filters don't actually exist.

- Updated our to use modern autotools.

- Fixed bgo#761728: Memory leak in the PrimitiveComponentTransfer filter.

- Added basic support for the 'baseline-shift' attribute in text objects (bgo#340047).

- Fixed some duplicate logic when rendering paths (bgo#749415).

- Rewrote the markers engine (bgo#685906, bgo#760180).

- Refactoring of the test harness to use Glib's gtest infrastructure, instead of using home-grown machinery.
Tests can simply be put as SVG files in the tests/subdirectories; it is not necessary to list them explicitly in some text file.

- Gzipped SVGs now work if read from streams.

- References to objects/filters/URIs/etc. are now handled lazily. Also, there is a general-purpose cycle detector so malformed SVGs don't cause infinite loops.

- Removed parsing of Adobe blend modes; they were not implemented, anyway.

- Add project files for building on Visual Studio (bgo#753555).

- Added an '--export-id' option to rsvg-convert(1). This lets you select a single object to export, for example, to pick out a group from a multi-part drawing. Note that this is mostly useful for PNG output right now; for SVG output we don't preserve many attributes which could be useful in the extracted version. Doing this properly requires an internal 'output to SVG' backend instead of just telling Cairo to render to SVG.
